This documentary reveals the exploratory work of a team from the University of Montreal who seek to understand the states of grace experienced by mystics and those who meditate. Filmmaker Isabelle Raynauld offers up scientific research that suggests that mystical ecstasy is a transformative experience and could contribute to people's psychic and physical health, treat depression and speed up the healing process when combined with conventional medicine. In French with English subtitles.

    Perhaps the reason why the MRI failed to pin-point any single zone of the brain is that the soul does not respond-to or is sited within the matter itself. I wonder however, if there might have been any anomalies present in the fluid that contains the brain, namely sited between the two frontal lobes in the longitudinal fissure. (Something that the scans may have recorded, but that the team may have dismissed or simply not noticed at all since this is outside of the areas that they were studying). My point being that if the soul communicates with the brain in any physical way at all; (as opposed to a metaphysical communion) then that communication must be electrical - however, electrical activity need not necessarily be via the nerve network, might there be some form of electrical induction present that has not previously been noticed. Perhaps they should dig out their data and take another look. .... Thank you.

    Extremely interesting documentary! It would be fascinating if the NFB could revisit this issue with the latest results of science in around ten years time. All science relating to the examination of either consciousness or meditation must be subject to the most rigorous experimental methodology, if it is going to be of any real use.
